So, my first Birch Box arrived. What is Birch Box? It’s this nifty little system where you pay $10/month and receive deluxe samples from great brands once a month. My first one finally arrived, and I got 5 things this month. The samples are usually beauty related, but one of my samples was an adorable greeting card with a discount. So cute. I have looked into other such programs, like Eco Emi, but they are a little more expensive and didn’t quite have as many brands. I liked Birch Box because it had some really good brands I was interested in getting samples from like NARS, Stila, Ahava, Blow and more. After 1 box, I’m pretty impressed and liked all my samples. Even the bright orange eyeshadow from Stila. It was a full-sized eyeshadow, but I thought “Orange, seriously?” but I tried it on and it was actually quite cute. Ok Birch Box, you win!
